Education is over rated these days. How many kids are walking the streets with a ton of debt, and a degree that is worthless were they are at..

There will always be homeless, as some people will always find a way to get there... Help is always there already for those who choose to take it..

Renewing our freedoms that are rightfully ours is not a laughing matter. Silencer legislation is just the first of those.

Gun silencer bill advances, moves to House floor - CNNPolitics
"Washington (CNN)A bill containing a controversial provision that would make obtaining gun silencers easier passed its first hurdle Wednesday, advancing to the House floor.
An initial hearing on the bill was first planned in June but postponed following the shooting of Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, the Republican House whip June 14.
The House Committee on Natural Resources passed the "Sportsmen Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act," or SHARE Act, a bipartisan bill that aims to "expand opportunities for hunting, fishing, and recreational shooting" and "increases safety and hearing protection for sportsmen and women," the committee wrote in a statement.

Republican Rep. Jeff Duncan of South Carolina was responsible for adding the specific provision on gun silencers and argued that silencers protect hunters from hearing loss."
yeah let's make it harder for terrorists to be caught and have more people die

How would a gun silencer bill follow this line of thinking? Terrorists want their work to be found/seen, otherwise, it's not terrorism......

This is about gun silencers, not terrorist invisibility products.

The silencer does nothing to silence the primer in the bullet, so I don't understand how any shooting will go undetected by people.
